When you walk into a new space, one of the first things you probably do is analyze it. A person’s bedroom will most likely be his or her private sanctuary. How big is your room? Does it feel cramped, or does it feel large enough to move around freely?
Maybe your bedroom isn’t all that small, but sometimes it may seem like it can get a bit confined. There are many ways on how you can make your bedroom seem bigger without construction.
Here Are Ideas On How You Can Achieve This:
Replace your bed with a luxurious multipurpose bed from Divan Bed Warehouse, futon or additional seating area if you have the space. If you would like to keep some furniture items already in your bedroom, try adding a chaise lounge chair which can serve as both seating and storage space.
Add mirrors in your bedroom to make it seem much larger; this creates the illusion of more distance. This works exceptionally well in small spaces such as a bathroom or walk-in closet, making it much easier for you to get ready in the morning when there isn’t enough space around your vanity or mirror.
It is important to bring light into your bedroom; consider adding blinds and curtains so that natural light can enter through your windows. The sunlight will help brighten up the room and make it feel much larger than what it actually is.
If you want to make your bedroom seem much larger, install powerful lights that are adjustable in order for you to be able to brighten up the room according to your preference and needs. With enough lighting at home, it can also improve one’s mood and productivity. You may consider looking into LED ceiling lights if you do not have overhead lighting, as they use quite a lot less energy than traditional bulbs and last longer.
No matter what size your bedroom is, you will always be able to make it seem larger by utilizing your vertical space properly. If you have tall ceilings or walls where you can hang something, do so! This will help save more floor area for walking around freely instead of having every inch covered with furniture items. Your options include mirrors, a coat rack, a bookshelf, your guitar or anything else that you can think of.
Place furniture items away from the walls so there is more walking space between them and use area rugs as well as lamps to create boundaries. If your room is painted in light colours, it will help reflect natural light and give off a brighter appearance.
Wall Art and Decorations
Avoid decorating with items that are too big for your bedroom. Oversized artwork can take away from an otherwise spacious room. Instead, use smaller paintings or prints to create a balanced look overall.
Consider colour when trying to make your room seem larger than it actually is. Darker colours absorb light, so by painting the walls in lighter colours, corners appear more rounded and take away from the boxed-in effect.
